Vimeo the HD alternative to Youtube

Sometimes you need to post a video online and the number of views, favorites and links doesn’t matter. What matters is quality. Youtube’s quality is a low 200kps and your video, let’s say your show reel or beautifully crafted TVC, looks awful in Youtube’s 320×240 blurry vision.

There is an alternative which offers all the community sharing aspects of Youtube but with increased quality. Not only that it supports HD. Upload a 1280×720 clip and Vimeo will auto create a small version (400×300) and allow viewers to watch the full HD footage. Here’s Vimeos HD FAQ which explains more.

Users have the option of turning off HD at any time and load the smaller clip so bandwidth is not an issue.
